Well Pitched is Moving

It is not really; Well Pitched is staying right here.

It is I who is moving.

I am currently counting down my last 10 days in Dubai & Abu Dhabi (home for the last 26 years), before I move to the UK for the next two years, or maybe longer.

Manchester to be exact.

Old Trafford, here I come!

Manchester Business School may not be happy to hear that but I guess I'll be found more at Old Trafford than at MBS.

This move could not have come at a better time considering that I am shifting to a country that the Pakistan cricket team is going to call home for the next few years.

The timing is just apt.

I fly out in 10 days from Dubai for a week's visit to London and a 10-day trip to the US; before I reach Manchester around mid-August and settle in.

Why am I telling you all this?

Well just to let you know why there may be a lack of activity on Well Pitched during this time.

Although the glassy post on Pakistan cricket generated a lot of buzz, I have posted only once since then in the last 4 days and have hardly commented on any other blog, which is very unlike me.

I've been pressed for time taking care of things before my move; the next 10 days will be even more hectic. Plus, while travelling it might get difficult to keep up with all the cricket, write about it, and comment.

That in no way means that Well Pitched will not continue to roll. It will and I will be writing; maybe just not as often.

Regular service should resume once I am in Manchester in about a month, unless the MBA starts taking a toll on me.

I doubt that though for you can take me away from the cricket, you can't really take the cricket away from me!

Make your pitch on this post...

    On behalf of Manchester - welcome!

    Congrats on the move to Manchester! Good place to be in - the cricket of course, and also if you into soccer, home of one of the best clubs in the world- no not Man City :-)

    Bamble - small correction mate ! Ronaldo in case you didn't notice, has moved to Real Madrid for £ 80 million.

    Best wishes for your travels and MBA, Q.

    Where will you be in the US? I am in the Boston area. Maybe we can meet or talk?

  7. Q said...


    Thanx man.. will get myself a berry I think, not the iphone..

    WP will continue surely and i'll be hopping over.. soon..

  8. Q said...


    I'd prefer "Gone with the cricket" !

  9. Q said...


    If that is where you are, we should def catch some cricket together.. I'm going to be there for the next 2 years atleast..

  10. Q said...


    Thanx man. Have heard lots about it, can't wait to experience the city!

    As for soccer.. guys, I'm sorry but I am not a fan. I know all these Ronaldos and Owens and et all but only because I watch a soccer world cup every 4 years.. I've never followed the leagues though I know abt the rivalries and who wins every year cos its all over the news..

    But something tells me I will soon be converting into a Red Devils fan.. maybe even forcibly!

  11. Q said...


    Thanx man.

    How I would have loved to be on the East side (I love it!), but due to the lack of time I am only going to be visiting family in San Fran and Seattle.. Can surely talk.. mail me ur number here:
